Some of these reviews are amusing. Did anyone actually test drive the Accord before buying it? This Accord is what it has always been - the sports sedan of work-a-day cars. This means it has a firm ride, quick, accurate steering, lots of road feel, a rev-happy engine and a slick shifting manual trans. Complaints about road noise, hard ride? Please. Listen, if you want a four-wheeled isolation chamber, buy a Buick. The Accord has grown up, but it still retains the qualities that have made its predecessors so beloved: a great DRIVING experience, quality, reliability and economy. My LX 5 spd is simple and fun to drive. The Accord is perfect if that's what you're looking for in a car.
Love the interior design. Plastics are high quality (better than Fusion, Camry, Malibu) and fit well. Great ride/handling balance. Excellent shift quality for the 5-spd. Lots of interior storage cubbies. Power windows down with the remote is a great feature. Exterior design is subtle, pleasing.
1979 called and it wants its single folding rear seat back. C'mon Honda, no 60/40 split? Seats are OK, but such aggressive lumbar support should include a way to adjust. The only "upscale" feature I miss is a trip computer w/ outside temp; this is a feature found on a lot of less expensive cars.
